      If you're just doing one pair this is seriously something you can make with a drillpress and a grinder. I'd draw them up, print it out and and use the paper as a pattern so everything will be on the same axle center.

      I would draw it up and give it to your local machine shop that could probably make a pair of brackets for like 100 bucks. Sure its more expensive then using a drill press and grinder, but when it comes to brakes, I would weigh safety and precision over only saving 100 bucks.

      Thanks VWvortex for the hard work!

      What type of rotor is that(size) and what size rim is that also.(specs) I want to upgrade my brakes some day and that picture is a dream come true. I want to run 15 inch rims, so will the rims fit with that big of a rotor. Thanks

      What do you think the machine shop is gonna use? They're not going to run a program for one set of adapters, they're going to use a drill press and grinder.

      Just be precise and confident and it's easy

      If your machine shop considers a drill press and a grinder "precise", they it sure as hell isn't a machine shop.

      With a well done schematic with bolt hole locations it should take 15min on a manually operated mill to drill 4 holes with + or - .001" precision, probably less time then using a 1/8th or so precision using a drill press and grinder

      Thanks VWvortex for the hard work!

      not that it really applies, but I have 11" and 10.1" adapters for my wilwood dynalites. Both from MMP they only made a few sets of 10.1 adapters which is why they arnt on the site, I may have gotten the last pair. I can take some pics when I go home next

      call mmp I bet they have a cad file already. The red paint in those pics shows where you need to grind a little bit on the brake hub but its pretty minimal. If mmp doesn't want to give the spec I will take some measurements when I get a chance.

      Those calipers have different mounting points than the ones that Kris has.

      I know I was just saying its possible to use regular dynalites with 10.1 rotors too. It was off topic a bit I was just throwing it out there

      Hey guys,

      Are these any good for you??

      http://www.clubgti.com/forum/s...lwood

      I have a set of these for my mk1 track/hillclimb and a set of the newly design calipers on order from wilwood USA (based in uk here)

      Very well made and a top bloke who sells these adaptors
